WET START TO THE WEEKEND AGAIN



Well, the day started out like this when we got to the farm, about 8:30am.  Some blue sky but a few wisps of something brewing.  I edged first, no Zen Machine time this weekend.  Instead, I used a definitely UNzen push mower, ugh, inside the fenced garden area.
More on that later.


I got as much done outside as possible before we began  hearing thunder and seeing lightning and it started getting like this.  Since we had plans in town, we decided to call it a day and literally just got the car loaded and shut the door when the bottom dropped out and it rained, buckets and buckets.



Farm is dead center where the push pin is in that huge storm cell.  2nd Family emailed a bit ago and said we got almost an inch of rain.  I'm sure the fruit trees loved it so I won't complain too much.  Still, WHY CAN'T IT RAIN DURING THE WEEK?  

Sigh.  We'll see what tomorrow brings...

I've always been partial to bold colors. ;)

It was good for the land so I won't complain too much. I hope some comes your way!!

If it had been me, I would have stayed out at the farm and enjoyed the rain while snuggling and maybe have a little farmhouse romance for the wet weekend. :)

I know! We usually do have a bit of a wet start to Fall usually. I just wish it would come during the week instead, ha.
